During his visit to the Naran Valley, the PM also inaugurated the ‘River Bank Protection and Habitat Restoration Programme.’
Under that, a large number of cedar and pine trees planted during this year’s afforestation campaign in light of Prime Minister’s Clean and Green Pakistan Vision.
This program will help protect riverbanks, prevent accumulation of silt in dams and enhance Naran’s beauty as well as improving the environment.
On the occasion, the Prime Minister also distributed motorbikes among Community River Rangers.
That aims to ensure surveillance of River Kunhar, its lacks and tributaries to check illegal fishing.
Besides, a two-year ban imposed on all kinds of fishing in River Kunhar, Saif-ul-Malook and Dudipatsar lakes to raise trout and other fish varieties.
In the second phase, ‘Naran Destination Trout Trophy Fishing’ will begin under ‘Catch and Release’ strategy to keep hunting of Trout and other wildlife within the established limit.
